An article by posted on June 25, 2007

I hate Mondays, but at least this one this one won’t be so bad because I have a Mets game to look forward to after work. And, might I add, that yesterday’s sweep was absolutely fantastic and that I loved the back page of Newsday this morning with the title "STRAIGHT A’S." ha ha As you all […]

Paul Lo Duca Bobblehead With Tossable Accessories

I just had to share this article with you after I read it this morning. Kristie Ackert over at the Daily News really made me laugh with the opening paragraph to her column today. Too bad there isn’t time to change the Paul Lo Duca bobble head doll that will be given away today at […]

Stay True To The Orange And Blue

An article by posted on June 18, 2007

OK. So the Mets didn’t sweep the Yanks.  They didn’t even take the series.  But they didn’t get swept either.  In fact, the season series is tied at three and the next time these two teams could face each other would be the World Series. Let me sum up this past weekend for those of you who couldn’t bare […]

Hey Mets Fans, Ya Gotta Have Faith!

An article by posted on June 17, 2007

Sometimes I find it so hard to see the positives in the Mets season, thus far. I spend so much time looking at and thinking about the negatives, that I forget how many times the Mets have overcome adversity in the past. I was thinking about last year when the Mets lost Pedro Martinez and […]

Beltran and Delgado Get Paid Like Superstars, But They Don’t Play Like Superstars

An article by posted on June 17, 2007

Mike Lupica severely lashed out at Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado in today’s Daily News. Here is just a little bit of what he had to say… Jose Reyes tried to be a star for his team, all the way to the top of the ninth, when he went up there righthanded against Mo Rivera […]

The Mets Gotta Fight, For Their Right, To Party!

An article by posted on June 16, 2007

These Mets don’t seem to have the fighting spirit… Sometimes you have to fight for what you really want… Sometimes, you have to do whatever it takes to get that R-E-S-P-E-C-T! That is the Mets biggest problem so far this season. They don’t have the stomach for a good old fashioned brawl. After the Dodgers […]

The Mets Are Down And Out In L.A.

An article by posted on June 14, 2007

Last night was just another game that was too difficult to watch, and in fact I was overcome with sleep for the last inning. The Mets lost to the Dodgers 9-1, and the game was as ugly as the score would indicate. Just as they had in their previous five contests, the Mets jumped out […]

The Mets Hope Orlando Hernandez Can Be Their Stopper

An article by posted on June 11, 2007

If the Mets think things are going to get any easier for them after losing three straight series to the Diamondbacks, Phillies and Tigers, think again. Tonight they begin a three game series against a Los Angeles Dodgers team that has arguably the best starting pitching in the National League. They meet for the first […]
